In four years, the detection of people with HIV- AIDS in Jalisco increased nearly 200%, in 2015 there were 270, while in 2018 the figure increased to 479, according to the Jalisco Health Secretariat ( SSJ ).
The Secretary of the State Council for the Prevention of AIDS (Coesida), Luis Alberto Ruiz Mora, said that now it is easier to detect the virus and patients who do it at an early stage have the possibility of living a more normal life, in spite of the medicines.
Patients who are treated in Coesida through the Seguro Popular have the advantage of not paying for treatments that can exceed $22,000 pesos a month in private clinics.
The shortage of antiretroviral drugs to treat HIV-AIDS patients has not affected Jalisco, as state authorities go to Mexico City (CDMX) to bring them and prevent that from happening, said Luis Alberto Ruiz Mora, who stressed that for Jalisco, there has always been federal support to have the resources and equipment to move the medication.
